What unites the flow of rivers and the human blood system, the structure of the tree and the latest achievements in technology, the creativity of artists and the strict mathematical sciences, the shell of the mollusk and the coat of arms of Russia, the surface of the moon and the economy, Hollywood blockbusters and the inconceivable complexity of the structure of the universe? And is it possible to find something in common? Definitely yes! Fractals are the basis for building our so diverse world. They are everywhere.
A fractal is a geometric figure, often characterized as being self-similar. Benoit Mandelbrot coined the term fractal to describe such figures. “Fractus” in Latin means broken, fragmented, or irregular.
